This fantastic hotel is in Parc de la Baie Orientale (gated community) on the French side of the island. It is a 5 minute walk to Orient beach and within walking distance to 5-6 great restaurants at "La Place" (Le Piment is the best) as well as a small grocery store. This is more of a family resort I think... More

Ok..if you are looking for party all night bars, touristy stuff and chain restaurants, this hotel and side of the island are not for you. But, if you are like me and just want to relax, hit a beach, and enjoy other people who want the same, I would recommend this hotel very highly. Just about a five minuet walk... More

Found this accommodation on a last minute travel deal in late April. We weren't sure what we could expect since few pictures of the room were posted. We were told we had a lower level studio room, which, we presumed would be tiny. We were delightfully surprised to find a huge open space, comfortable king size bed, (surrounded by mosquito... More

My wife and I visited St. Martin May 31 - Jun 7. We rented a car at the airport so that we could tour the island at our leisure. We were pleasantly surprised at the size of the rooms at La Plantation (the buildings were like duplex bungalows). Our parking spot was directly in front of the room and everything... More

Location is perfect for this hotel, 2 blocks up from the beach and about 5 minute walk to a great few restaurants. The rooms are a very good size and our balcony had great ocean views. The check-in was smooth and everyone was friendly. The only negative is the rooms are a little dated. The servers are the restaurant were... More

We have wanted to check this hotel out so away for morning chow and adventure we went. The breakfast is served under a... More

Went back again for two weeks.Will be back again next year. Laid back retreat was my previous review of this hotel. Not much changed. I can add a few tips though. This hotel is more like renting a villa or cottage than a traditional north american style hotel or highrise. Quiet and privacy on your own patio with great views... More

The rooms are a bit dated but very clean. (Don't rely on using the sofa bed for comfortable sleeping but the bed is very comfortable) The setting is beautiful and it is very close to the beach. The staff members are really professional and helpful. There is a restaurant on site for evening meals. I would definitely go back. It... More

We have stayed many times at La Plantation, most recently for two weeks in April 2015. If you are looking for a 5-star luxury resort, this is not it, but it has a lot going for it a reasonable prices. Positives: • large, pleasant rooms with kitchenettes, • upper-level rooms (where we usually stay) with wonderful views of Orient Bay... More
